personally i gave up fads and sub-cultural fashion when i turned 21.
i guess u CAN ride it a bit longer if yr a rockstar or something but it REALLY looks sad after like 35.
nothing worse that a greying mohawk .
now all i want is some pants that fit well on the hips and ass without being skanky looking and comfortable, non leather shoes and a nice black or navy sweatshirt.
i got bored of the whole trash thing in like 95-96
at the time it was EVERWHERE
tikis, dinners, betty page wanna-bees
the thing is if you look at mart's other stuff it's all really beyoud that and just plain fucking weird
i find his work really diffrent esp this one: http://www.gigposters.com/posters.php?poster=9305
it doesn't distrub me too see various fads creeping up all ove the world what disturbs me is this: people who get into a certain fad in thier teens or earl 20's and then hold on to it for thier dears lives as long as they can
i know a BUNCH of rockabily guys in thier 40's- they all look the same, they collect the same stuff and have identical cars and wives
that's sad in my book
i have some of the theater posters- they are the only posters we've gotten framed
here's a funny story
b4 gettingevicted from our beautifull live-in studio in the nicest part of town,
yannick and i had a roomate rob us blind.
we got a temp replacement who is an actor in sevral local theater companies
right before we had to leave our actor buddy had a HUGE blowout party with the casts and crews of both plays he's in and we stuck around a bit to sweet talk the directors into getting some poster gigs.
well we showed our portfolio to the 2 directors and got both jobs.
3-4 days after the party however we got about 10 emails from diffrent actor/directors wanting to hire us based on the AMAZING theater posters theysaw on the walls
our roomie thought the chantry stuff (an everything else on the walls : jay ryan, kliensmith, bell, herzick ect) was ours and gave out ouremail adress after we left to EVERYBODY
we didn't say we DID those posters but we didn't say we didn't do em either
i just figure all the fringe fest posters we do better be extra special now
